Tuam RFC Women's team qualified for the AIL Cup Round 1 for the first time this season and although they got a home tie in the draw, they weren't so lucky with the opponent. Dublin's Old Belvedere, one of Ireland's premier women's clubs were the visitors. Unfortunately for the hosts, this was a mismatch and although they battled and worked tirelessly, Tuam RFC were no match for Old Belvedere's strong running and flowing rugby. It will be a return to local challenges for Tuam RFC as Old Belvedere march on to round 2.
